TUCSON, Ariz. - On the eve of the Rice baseball team's appearance in its home NCAA Regional at Reckling Park, Owl freshman Anthony Rendon was named a Third Team All-America selection by Collegiate Baseball newspaper, the publication announced Thursday (May 28) from its headquarters in Tucson, Ariz.
Rendon is one of seven third baseman in the country named to Collegiate Baseball's 2009 All-America teams. The Rice rookie is also a semifinalist for two of the sport's most coveted postseason honors as the national player of the year with the Dick Howser Trophy (presented by the baseball writers) and the Golden Spikes Award (presented by USA Baseball).
A local standout form nearby Lamar High School, Rendon recently became the first player in Conference USA history to be named both the C-USA Player and C-USA Freshman of the Year in the same season. He has had a sensational debut at the Division I level, leading the league in home runs (19) and leading the Owls in batting average (.375) and RBI (64). Rendon has scored 54 runs, walked 28 times and added 12 doubles to help account for a conference-best .704 slugging percentage.
The Rice baseball team begins play in the NCAA Tournament with its home NCAA Regional this Friday (May 29) at Reckling Park. The Owls host longtime rival Sam Houston State at 6 pm. The early game of the Regional features Kansas State and Xavier in a 2 pm start.
